The New York Festival of Light is coming to DUMBO this November!
It’s a non-profit art organization whose mission is to celebrate light in all of its extraordinary incarnations. New York Festival of Light is the brainchild of Ira Levy, an award-winning New York City-based lighting designer and Liam O’Braion, a producer of large-scale entertainment events.
On October 24, 2013, they were able to produce “First Light” at the Elizabeth Street Garden in NoLIta and presented a sampling of what will be seen in November’s event. The hundreds of New Yorkers that attended got to experience the different types of light installations and performances that others have enjoyed in cities like Berlin, London, Lyon, Montreal, and Sydney.
Attendees journeyed through the sculptures in the garden and were able to view the many artistic displays of light installations along with artists, dancers, designers, musicians, videographers, and technologists who work in the medium. They were all able to convert that New York City night into something amazing.
The light festival, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled to take place in November 6-8, so don’t miss out!
